Space Image: Star cluster Westerlund 2, stunning orange, red, blue and black colors.
This image shows the sparkling centerpiece of Hubble's 25th anniversary tribute. Westerlund 2 is a giant cluster of about 3000 stars located 20 000 light-years away in the constellation Carina.
Hubble's near-infrared imaging camera pierces through the dusty veil enshrouding the stellar nursery, giving astronomers a clear view of the dense concentration of stars in the central cluster.

The original NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image was released under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license. I carefully enhanced the picture with a special artistic treatment. Looks like a realistic painting, can be printed in large sizes and the colors are more vivid and vibrant than in the original photo. It will look amazing as large print, canvas print, metal or acrylic print on your wall. Bring the universe in your home or office!
